Hello everyone. I have been way to busy.
My elbow is on the back burner for now, still cannot find a surgeon near me.
And my Dear sweet mom is having open heart surgery as soon as we get her scheduled. Replacing her aortic valve. SO sad. But she is so healthy so she will be fine. And all the family will be there.
I am having a quilt retreat March 8,9, 10, same weekend as the Dallas Quilt show. DIdn't plan it that way. I won a half price retreat at Alford
This year I felt a desire to document my quilt journey. I am embarking on two postage stamp quilt adventures and perhaps I felt that if I do so (document), I would be sure to complete them in some form. Also, I have collected a few finished quilt tops waiting to be turned into quilts for awaiting family and friends. I am not one that likes to have a lot of unfinished projects lying around so something had to be done. Plus I have a couple of quilt orders that need to be finished and I have had friends

Last night I sewed the binding to the back of the quilt. I had a little trouble with the joining of the binding at the end because I have not learned how to do the 45 degree angle join yet. I usually just push the two ends together with a straight edge on the potholders and wallhangings I have done. I wanted this quilt to be right, so I used a youtube video and worked on joining the binding last night for over an hour. It was an experience and I learned a lot.
Tonight I will

After a little bit of praying and a little bit of swearing, I was able to get it back on the frame and finish it! This is for a co-worker who commissioned me to make it for her. I quilted it with my Voyager 17 and used Hobbs polydown batting. Thanks for all the suggestions on how

I am looking for some long plastic zippers to make quilt leaders.
I subscribe to Dutchsinse on Youtube and have followed him for over a year and have to say that he gives really excellent reporting on earthquakes and wild weather predictions due to HAARP rings. He predicted the horror in Joplin, MO a couple of days before it happened. Over the last two days he has been measuring radioactive properties of the snow in St. Louis. The news is NOT good. Think about it. The earthquake at Fukushima happened just about a year ago and all the mess has been drifting our
Good morning. Hope you take the time to find some love around you today. Remember, the more you give, the more you get.
And in that vein, I just remembered that I've been remiss in welcoming new members to the board. I do recall that when I joined there were lovely people who took a moment to greet me so for Valentine's Day, I decided to visit the new members thread and spread the quilty love. No time to do them all, but I will try to do two or three each day. How about you?
